Dear Friends and Supporters:
See yesterday’s Los Angeles Times article, “Leaning Millennium Tower in San Francisco sinking faster, retrofit halted.”
One of San Francisco’s tallest skyscrapers, Millennium Tower has sunk since construction began in 2006 and is tilting.
Millennium Partners is attempting to build another skyscraper project in Hollywood, a project that has come under criticism after state geology officials have said there are studies that “strongly support the presence of an active … fault strand entering” the skyscraper site.
Opponents of the developer’s Hollywood Center project said the ongoing problems with Millennium Tower in San Francisco should be a warning sign to Los Angeles to not allow Millennium’s Hollywood project to proceed.
“The ongoing disaster in San Francisco is more evidence that developer Millennium Partners cannot and should not be trusted,” said Robert P. Silverstein, a Pasadena lawyer who represents neighborhood groups opposed to the development.
Keep the pressure on City Hall and California State Geologist officials. Please email your protests about the irresponsibility of still even considering approval of the Hollywood Center Project.
